Yesterday's hero John Paul Young By Rockin Ron. 

F/G X 4

   C

1.    When we walk down the street, 
F
see the people who stop and stare, 

and say, "Haven't I seen that face somewhere, 
        G

a long time ago." 


   C

2.   When we walk down the street, 
F
see the stranger who says, "Why, hi", 

with a "How you going, buddy, when you walked on by, 
               G

I thought I'd say hello." 
           G

They say: Haven't I seen your face before, 

weren't you the boy that used to live next door, 

weren't you on television every night, 

haven't I seen you round ? 

C                               G
We don't wanna be a yesterday's hero, 
            F                     C - G - C
yesterday's hero, that's all we'll b..e. 
                        
C                                G                     F  
We don't wanna be a yesterday's hero, and yesterday's hero, 

             C          G          F

is all that we're gonna be, if we don't get together, 

C            G           F

make a new plan, and be constantly better, 

 C            G          F                  C

all that we'll be, if we don't get together now. 

  C

3. When we walk down the street, 
F
if you know me, then pass me by 

if you wonder what I'm doing, don't ask me why, 
        G

I don't read the news. 

  C

4. When we walk down the street, 
F

if you're sorry, then don't feel bad, 

if you followed my story, then just be glad, 
                
           G
you ain't in my shoes. 



         G

Because haven't you seen my face before, 

yes, I was the boy who used to live next door, 

yes, I was on television every night, 

haven't you seen me round ?

Also later covered by the Bay City Rollers. JPY said it was a great cover version, when I spoke to him a few years back.
